Jul 25, 2017

Supporting Military Warriors' Employment Endeavors

Thousands of veterans transition out of the military every year. Adapting to life outside of the military can be difficult for current service members and veterans. TPI is committed to providing the highest quality of resources to assist in the transitioning process through the WARRIORS IN TRANSITION MATRIX and THE DIRECTORY.

Helping Veterans and Acting Military Service Members – Warriors in Transition Matrix

THE PATRIOT INITIATIVE’s Warriors In Transition ("WIT") Matrix lists hundreds of companies and organizations that have passed TPI’s thorough vetting and evaluation process, and are recognized amongst the nation's premier employers, educators and training programs that have shown a real commitment to hiring and supporting our nation's military veterans and their families as they transition into the civilian workforce

The WIT MATRIX is continuously changing through regular updates. If you are a transitioning warrior, veteran, or family member, the WIT MATRIX is a complimentary resource where you can be directly connected to employers and other programs.

One example organization that is listed on the WIT MATRIX, as well as THE DIRECTORY, is Workshops for Warriors.

Happy Anniversary to the Army Chaplain Corps!

The U.S. Army Chaplains Corps provide religious support to America's Army. The Chaplain Corps consists of an ordained clergy of multiple faiths who are commissioned Army officers serving as military chaplains as well as enlisted soldiers who serve as assistants. At the unit level, a chaplain and chaplain assistant form a Unit Ministry Team (UMT), and are embedded throughout all three components of the Army – Active, Guard, and Reserve.
